Services & Therapy
Therapy with Vera
Vera is a person first and a therapist second.
Vera’s no guff attitude means you’re going to get answers that are straight to the point. No beating around the bush, no sugar coating the situation. Vera’s goal is for you to feel the best you’ve ever felt about yourself. It’s that simple.
Do you have the courage? I say yes!
You’ve already shown it by making it this far. Together we can work towards achieving your goals big or small. Whatever it is, I’m here to listen and help. Review some of my services below, if any of them strikes a chord, let’s connect and chat in more detail.
Individual Psychotherapy (in-person or secure video)
I provide psychotherapy services (in-person or secure video) in different areas of practice which includes depression, anxiety, life transitions and adjustment difficulties, trauma, substance use, relationships difficulties, work-life balance and career challenges. My approach emphasizes taking the necessary steps to change your current situation and achieve your dreams. My style is direct, person-directed, strengths-based and solution-focused. My work is guided by cognitive-behavioural, humanistic, and holistic frameworks. My interventions include CBT, DBT, Motivational Interviewing, and Crisis/Suicide Intervention. I believe in choice, personal preference, and individualized approach to treatment and encourage my clients to communicate their preferences for treatment and actively seek their feedback.
My work with families is guided by the framework that a family is an individualized unique unit as defined by its members (including same sex couples, blended, adopted, non-blood relatives, and “traditional” families). Each family unit has own dynamics, strengths, and struggles. I will work with you and your family to resolve relationship conflict and difficulties whenever possible.
Clinical Supervision and Consulting
I offer clinical supervision to social work, counselling, psychotherapy, primary care, and substance use professionals. I also offer consulting services to professionals and organizations in areas of clinical services, quality assurance, policy and program development. If you are in need of supervision or consulting services, please contact me for further details.
